What a beautiful day!
My SAH Mommas group spent the day in the city walking around the monuments. Since there were 3 little ones, we didn’t get all that much sight seeing in but it was such a beautiful day we didn’t care! 🙂 We met at the Smithsonian metro stop and worked are way around the Washington Monument, WWII Memorial and Lincoln Memorial. We had to stop a few times for diaper changes and feedings but we didn’t mind. It was such a beautiful day outside that the fresh air and breeze was relaxing.
It would have been a perfect trip if was able to find where I had parked a little easier. I remembered where I parked, I just couldn’t find it. I swore it was GG5 but all I could find was G5 and no car. Then I realized that I turned in the wrong direction when I got off the elevator and there are two separate garages. P was so cute watching me try to find the car 🙂 I am glad he didn’t really know what was going on!
Here are some of my favorite shots for of the day!

|Enjoying the breeze! He absolutely loved looking around.|
|Real men wear pink! Mommy remembered everything but a hat. It’s okay though, he didn’t like the carrier (or the hat) very much. He preferred to stay in the stroller and look around while playing with Frey!|
I can’t share my weight loss today because our scale is broken :/ I promise to report back next week with a hopefully nice loss. I wanted to get down to 200 lbs by the end of this month so I have just a few more days to achieve that! I am getting better each day with figuring out how to eat healthy and be a SAHM. It’s amazing how much more food for you bang you can get when choosing healthy options.
I decided to really test this theory out and put together breakfast, lunch and two snacks the night before.
|Nature Valley granola bar, Yoplait, tuna sandwich, fruit cup, apple, cheese and crackers and carrots = 26 points!|
I can’t believe all the food I got for only 26 points leaving me with 19 for dinner and an evening snack. A Burger King Whopper and fries come in around the same number of points. Of course, the above menu is lacking some chocolate but I can add a Skinny Cow candy bar for only another 2 points. This also includes 2 dairy, 3 fruit, 1 vegetable and protein.
I did want to share a really helpful article that I found on one of my favorite pregnancy/mommy blogs. It’s titled, How Real Moms Lose Weight, and can be found here. I can agree that it is so hard to find time for me, that when I do finally get it, exercising isn’t really top of my list. I have found ways to exercise while tending to P which include weights while breastfeeding!
